I dreamed last night that I saw a starship crash into downtown Las Vegas. It looked rather a lot like a star destroyer. Fortunately, it hit a desert lot, and did surprisingly little damage.

I think the smoke from the wildfires may be affecting me. No telling what's growing out there.

And la. It's book launch day. Hello, Scardown. You're the public's problem now.

I think maybe we need to start a community or something. There have to be more of us out there.

In other news, I can still sling a bale of hay, although not as fast or as far as I once could. That's good to know.

Pithy Bear?

So, is there anything in particular that I've said, here or in fiction, that you'd like to see on a coffee mug or a T-shirt?

Why, yes, I do have an ulterior motive for asking.

ETA: I should mention that I remember at least two occasions when people said something to the effect of "Can I quote that?" but I don't remember what it was that I said, or who asked me. *g* So sing out, if you recall.

Well, that was the most mind-numbing way I've ever spent an evening.

Tah dah. Bear (and Truepenny, and Here's Luck) signature junk.

There may eventually be version of the "Radio Free Mordor" and "Green Eggs & Hamlet" shirts available with art, if you're willing to hold out for modifications.

The text of the Green Eggs & Hamlet shirt, by the way, if it's too small to read, is:

I will not stab him in the dark.
I will not stab him in the park.
I will not stab him in the night.
I will not stab him in a fight.
I will not stab him in the day.
I will not stab him while he prays.

I will not stab my uncle, Dad.
No, not though he was very bad.
